•1 John 3:1-3•
"See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that IS what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Dear friends, now we ARE children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure."
What marvelous love the Father has extended to us! Just look at it—we’re called children of God! That’s who we really are. But that’s also why the world doesn’t recognize us or take us seriously, because it has no idea who he is or what he’s up to. But friends, that’s exactly who we are: children of God. And that’s only the beginning. Who knows how we’ll end up! What we know is that when Christ is openly revealed, we’ll see him—and in seeing him, become like him. All of us who look forward to his Coming stay ready, with the glistening purity of Jesus’ life as a model for our own."
Wow, a Child of God. There is no better name or title we can have than to be the King of Kings son or daughter. My prayer this week and for you tonight is that God will show you how much He loves, how much He adores you and how He desires to be so very close to you.
I dont know where most of you are but I do know that Jesus desires to provide your every need. Just like most of our earthly Fathers desire to provide for us, how much more do you think Jesus desires to provide for you.
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
Do you need strength? Ask for it!
Do you need peace? Ask for it!
Do you need to be rescued? Ask Him to rescue you!
Do you need to be healed? Ask!
God HEARS YOU! He WILL answer! It may not be in your time or exactly when you ask but He will come through! He cannot deny His character and He is a Father and a Provider.
Trust In Him. Believe In Him. Rest In Him.
YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD.
In His Love
